by the energy and commerce committee here in the house. but support for this agenda also requires us to pull the plug on existing programs that simply aren't working. and the department of energy's title 17 loan guarantee program is simply not advancing the ball on an all-of-the-above energy goal. the no more solyndras act, this bill phases out this costly, ineffective and frankly very mismanaged program. the investigation of solyndra uncovered a story worse than anyone could have imagined. it is amazing to me that the administration gave a half billion dollar loan guarantee to a company that its own experts predicted would fail. a company so dysfunctional that it burned through this giant handout and went bankrupt in two years. even worse, when it became clear to the administration that solyndra was in trouble, it chose to double down on the risky bet, gambling even more taxpayer dollars with a desperate loan restructuring instead of trying to cut its losses and move on. solyndra is the most visible but far from the only example of title 17 failures. in fact, it is hard to point to a single

about the agenda focusing on trade and commerce suddenly being overshadowed by beijing's frank comments. >> it has been a strange day. as you said, it started off with backslapping over the growth of the china-eu trade arrangement over the last 10 years. bilateral trade levels have quadrupled. there was praise from the e use side for china and praise from china for the east side, but then, as has already been made clear, suddenly, the chinese decided to get a bit negative and the live transmission was turned off. diplomatically, the eu said he was getting into the substance of the negotiation, but it was the chinese who insisted on that happening. there is a sense that the summit has been sort of run by the chinese. there was not even a final press conference because the chinese wanted a list of which journalists would be there. the european commission had to say that was just not on. there was no press conference of any sort. smiles and backslapping on trade and the economy, and yet, this underlying sense that the chinese are dictating the way the meeting is going on, and, of course, t
